    I have my flat panel TV mounted over my fireplace so I wanted the cables and electronics out of site to give the room a clean look. After running the required cables through the walls behind the flat panel TV and mounted speakers in various locations (wires in the walls), I moved a satellite receiver and surround sound system with DVD player into a closet. I then set the remote extender transmitter on the front center speaker which has the transmitter hidden by the bottom edge of the TV and then set the remote extender receiver on top of the satellite receiver tried it and everything works great. I expected to have to place the remote extender receiver in front of the electronics, but it works great sitting on top of them. I love it and I'm very satisfied with the way it performs. The only negative I can see is there is a very slight, let me repeat, a very slight delay when the buttons on the remote are pushed.

      Works better than the other brand I used for a few years - till it died. However, I did need to plug this one into a different outlet to get it to work. But it works just fine now. Love these things. I use it so I only need one cable box - although I don't have to share my TV's with anyone or they would have to watch what I watch.

        Wanted to control the TV set top box from the bedroom, through 3 walls. Although it is advertised to be able to work through 3 walls, it only managed to pass through 1 wall after some testing.Ended up using it just to control the set top box in the living room, with the transmitter placed outside the TV cabinet, and the receiver inside the cabinet with the set top box.Prone to EM interference by other devices, will not work if the interference overloads the signal.On the bright side, the boxes look good and high tech. The receiving range is wide and far.

          USING THIS TO EXTEND MY REMOTES FROM OUTSIDE FOR MY AV RECEIVER. WORKS WELL BUT HAVE TO USE REMOTES PRETTY CLOSE TO THE TRANSMITTER FOR IT TO GET THE SIGNALS. CORRECT PLACEMENT OF THE TRANSMITTER AND RECEIVER IS ESSENTIAL.

                Comments about Terk Technologies LF-IRX Remote Control Extender:

                I tried three different sets of this extender through two different vendors. The first set worked for about six hours, then failed altogether. I contacted the mgf. and paid $8.50 to mail it back for a repair or replace within 10-14 days. Not wanting to wait, I also ordered another set from another vendor. It would only work if the remote was no more than 5 ft. from the transmitter. I returned it to that vendor for a refund. When the replacement set arrived from the first vendor it was DOA. I returned this one also for a refund. So, when it does work, it doesn't come close to the advertised 20 ft. working distance from the remote to the transmitter. I do not recommend this product.

                        I use this product to control an Infrared controlled air conditioner not in the line of sight of my typical location. It can also control two other infrared devices. I used the prior model to control my cable tv box while concealing it under my bed.

                        I think this would be an excellent seller if people understood what it can do and how effortless it is to install and use.

                        PLUG THEM IN AND PLACE THEM AS DESCRIBED IN THE INSTRUCTIONS.

                              I have the older LF-IRX and they are great. I asked Audiovox if the new ones and the old one would work together and they said yes, well I haven't had any luck getting them to work together and the range and sensativity on the new ones is not as good as the previous version. I also like the old style better as well, they are more pyramid shaped. I will keep them as they are better than nothing but I wish I could still by the old model...

                                  This product lets me close the doors on my A/V equipment cabinet (Wife is really happy) and do all of the remote operation with ease.
                                  It works very well with the HDTV- TV, Receiver, and DVD equipment that I have. I recommend it to anyone!

                                    I used the remote extender inside a cabinet that contained my components. No I have my components behind closed doors (out of sight), but controllable from their own remotes. Easy set-uo, reliable operation. Highly recommended.

                                    I have an older model of this product by Terk. I is the same device but in a different casing. The old device, used at home, has been working well for a few years. The newer device, as pictured here, has never worked well. Often, I will unplug the transmitter and plug it back in which sometimes gets it to work, but not always. The remote is usually pointed about 1 ft from the transmitter and the receiver is about 15 ft away from the transmitter, just around an open corner, just out of site. The component I am trying to control is only 6 ft from the receiver. I do not think this is a well made product.
